A former village hall in the community of Llanddona, Ynys Môn is on sale with permission to convert the building into "two spacious holiday units".


52.8% of the population of the village, located in the south west of the island, are able to speak Welsh.


The village is the setting of a local folk tale—Gwrachod Llanddona—which recounts the story of a group of witches who arrive at the village by boat.


The building is described as being "situated in the heart of the village".


Comedian Tudur Owen, who hails from Ynys Môn, described the property as "No's 1 & 2 Dystopian Heights, Landonnah, Angleseh"— in reference to the Anglicisation of the island.


Owen added: "The communities that we once knew have gone and will never return, this is just a brutal and haunting reminder of that. Dead villages don't need halls."
